ESPN is concluding its countdown of the top 100 players on offense and defense. The top-ranked player from the Baltimore Ravens comes from the defensive side of the ball:


9. Haloti Ngata, defensive tackle: After playing out of position last season because of injuries up front, Ngata will move back inside and has the potential to dominate at nose tackle. Only two interior defensive players made the top 10: Ngata and the Bengals' Geno Atkins (No. 7).
